People say the darndest things, it's true. But if you look closely when you travel, you'll find they do the darndest things too.
In Paris, I once watched a couple try to fit a huge CRT TV (I'm dating myself) into the back of a Smart Car. I sat at the café and drank rosé for 45 minutes while they unpacked the TV and contorted their bodies in all kinds of positions before realizing what I thought was obvious from the beginning, "Non!"
This scene in old town Dubrovnik happened 15 years later, but it reminded me of that day in Paris. I watched as the men seemed to shake their heads, "No way is this metal beam going up the narrow twisty stairway."
So they did the next best thing---through the window.
